Has anyone played Sim City Build It?

Post by Lishws720 » 07 Jan 2016, 21:44

I'm curious about the game. Is it just as fun as this one? Can you play it without in-app purchases? Has anyone out there ever played it? Opinions and advice welcome.

Its been a good long while since I played. I never purchased anything and enjoyed it and may give it another go now that you've brought it up. :D IIRC, the grid isn't very big and it was hard to keep the city going once it filled it up. If it cost more than a dollar or two to download, maybe it's not worth it, but I think it's free? If so, I guess it was worth the price! :lol: It's not as fun as SFP though.

It should be free to download. You really don't need any in app purchases at the moment. I think it's very good and it's not as demanding as SFP so you can go some days without playing it when you don't have time.

When I first started it (couple of months ago) I started building my city/buildings too much too fast which leveled me up quickly. Which is also very good I think (because you unlock more stuff to do/build)(but of course it can get demanding as well). But now I've decided I want to focus on how the city looks and having it just "perfect" so I bulldozed some buildings and am taking it quite slow (because you know time priority is SPF and all :lol: )

They also have seasonal buildings (they had halloween and winter themed parks and things during that time) and some recent updates which are quite nice.

Thanks for responding. I just might try this one out!

Have you started playing, lishws? I play it frequently, but can also go days without doing anything more than collecting taxes - which is a great way to build up money fast. It's definitely not as fun as sfp, but not as demanding either. If you build up quickly it can be overwhelming, and the higher you go, the more keys or sim cash you need for the more prized locations. The trade center is great for getting those hard to find/create objects to expand different areas. And if you have an evil side you can cause earthquakes and meteor strikes!

My biggest pet peeve right now is there's no inventory to store what you've already built. There's the city storage for all the items you make, but nothing for buildings, parks, etc. for when you want to do something like remodel your city. It's frustrating and annoying. The only option is to move or bulldoze. And if you don't have any open expansions then you're just sol. Sigh. Otherwise, I enjoy it. Oh, I also found recently it doesn't keep me logged in to gc which is also irritating. But maybe that's a glitch on my end.

No, I haven't tried the game yet, I got sidetracked by Covet Fashion, and the recent SFP updates/quests have kept me hopping. I'm still intrigued, though. Maybe when SFP settles down a bit.

I have a fairly new SFP game which I started in late Dec. I'm working on getting it up to life dreams and legacies, and then filling in all the quests, WITHOUT buying anything with real money. So far so good, I've been able to use all of the helpful tips in this forum to enhance my playing experience, and my VIP in that game remains at zero. So, this game is currently keeping me very busy, as you can imagine.

I've just started playing it, it's kind of interesting but it is a bit slow I think. It's going to take ages to get enough Simcash in order to build things. But I'm enjoying it so far, however I may get bored within a few weeks, we will have to wait and see!

Well, I got bored of it already! I've deleted the app as I knew I couldn't handle any more trying to place buildings properly and pressing buttons. I think I'll stick with Sims Freeplay, it's a lot more exciting!

It was the same for me. I ran out of room to build on so the game got boring so deleted it too. Pity because I did spend loads of time and money on it
